Charitable donation instead of Christmas cards

December 21, 2010

As in previous years, I have made a charitable donation on behalf of CyberText Consulting in lieu of sending out Christmas cards to clients or having a Christmas party (with myself).

As in 2008, I have donated $500 to the Western Operations of the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is an essential service for people living and working in areas outside the major metropolitan centers. It provides on-ground medical services and air ambulance transport.

Many of my clients are oil and gas, mining and resource companies whose employees live and work in some of Australia’s remotest places. The RFDS is a lifeline for them, and for all outback workers and travelers. While the RFDS gets some government funding, it relies a lot on donations and bequests to keep running.
